OK how about,

"At the end of the initial install process the system can attempt to eject any 
install media that was used as part of the install. This is normally done so 
the system will boot from the new install, rather than the install media. If 
you do not want the system to attempt to eject you can disable it and take 
responsibility for any potential boot device ordering issues."

The non-translatable was recommended by fjp, I think so it could be added and 
not be blocked by the string freeze?
